Anyone who knows me well knows I don't like Donald Trump or his Vice President Mike Pence. Vice President Pence is a super-religious wacko and often claims the whole faith and morality thing. People made fun of him for saying he doesn't dine alone with women so he won't be tempted to cheat on his wife. But to be honest, I kind of understand that but I'm more a realist. If you're a woman who's remotely attractive, and I have dinner alone with you, friendship ain't what I'm looking for. That's never happened outside of committed dating for me, but I would have no reason to take a attractive woman out for dinner for any other reason. There's no need to fight off feelings if you never intend to start that.
One of my co-workers Aimee gets hit on a lot, and her boyfriend Keith (who was also a co-worker) broke up with her because she had dinner alone with another guy. Some people thinks that's A-okay, but I don't exactly blame Keith. Women are more gullible to believe men and women can stay "friends", and while there are exceptions, most men have the wrong intentions more often than not.
Would you have dinner alone with someone else outside your partner/spouse?
